If your family had a car when you were a kid, what kind was it?   If you didn't, what form of transportation did you use?

My mom was a huge Oldsmobile fan.   She always had a Olds wagon when I was really little.   We had a wood paneled Vista Cruiser for years.

Then when we started traveling for swim meets every weekend she got one of those 1980's big vans with carpet on the walls and ceiling.   There was a table in the back with vinyl seats surrounding it.   In front of that were 4 captain's chairs.   We were traveling in style.

I'm pretty sure it was a plymouth. Looks like this one except ours had a dark brown top.

I remember 2 cars in particular. One was this car:

A matador - ours was like this except it was all the ugly pumpkin orange.

And then we had a Checy Love pickup truck like this:

Ours was a baby blue color with a white topper.  We had it when we lived in North Carolina. I remember we started a trip up to WV to visit and a big 18 wheeler passed us and kicked a rock up and shattered our windsheild.  

I have a really bad memory and can not remember much about my child hood. What I can remember is just little snippits of memories. :(  I wish I could remember more.

The last car Daddy owned was a 1956 two-door Olds, black with red interior.  He sold it in 1959 when we moved into the city.

Before that one, we had a black one like this:

My sister learned to drive on a Turismo Duster.   Oh how I envied that car.   That is until the motor blew up.  It had those black things down the back windshield like this one.   Hers was brown.

It's hilarious to see all these cars.

Brown must have been the "in" color back then. I don't see brown too much anymore, thank goodness.
